Default wont start

my 08 ram 4.7 turns over but wont start. no prior problems and just out of the clear blue it wont start. still has power on all dash lights and gauges. where do i start to find the solution? warranty is done so going to the dealership is way to pricey

Well there are 3 things you need to check for. Compression, Fuel pressure, and spark. Those are the 3 basic things an engine needs to start. See if you can perform those tests and let us know.

If you are unfamiliar with the precedures involved, check out EricTheCarGuys channel on youtube. He covers all those precdures. And you can rent the testers from autozone or another parts store near you.'

Also, here is the factory service manual to help if you need it,
